After 4 doses of Rimadyl my 7year old Doberman could hardly walk. He would just fall, legs would give out, front feet would knuckle and he would fall. Possibly a severe reaction to Rimadyl or the Rimady exacerbated an underlying problem. He's been having PT/laser tx with very little improvement. Would your meds help?

Dear Mary,

I would try PROMAXOL. It helps to decrease pain, inflammation, and stiffness and stimulate healing. Initially I would give a half dose with breakfast and again at supper. After improvement is seen you can decrease to a whole dose once daily. For longer term management you can switch to ARTHRO-IONX. In addition I find it helpful to follow a holistic approach by giving nutritional supplements to accompany the homeopathic. I would also use PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9 to reduce inflammation and strengthen the body. What type of food and water are you giving?

I would also suggest an evaluation by a veterinary chiropractor. If a correction is needed, that can help with better movement.

Please let us know how you do so we can help guide you.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
